Wonderful account of life of Cornelia "Fly Rod" Crosby. She marketed Maine sporting camps and hotels to people in Boston, NY, and Philadelphia. Encouraged Maine tourism to Rangeleys and other areas of Maine. This book is a wonderful account of her life and contributions to Maine tourism. Many incredible photos by E. R. Starbird throughout the book.
